Is the economy driving you nuts?
After years of this “advice,” I had a nightmare last night. I was the job hunter (an office job again, not this scrambling for assignments). The interviewer looked like that scraggly-haired Debbie Wasserman-What’s Her Name.
She was telling me about the position, it seemed easy enough—clear enough. I smiled, let her speak, the whole thing.
Then she said, “I gave you 18 chances to succeed or fail and you failed all of them!”
I followed my advice—and said, “Can you tell me what I did wrong for future reference?”
She said, NO!
I left—in a Hummer driven by some woman with her hair in a bun. No idea who that was.
Is this mess getting to you? I need vodka.
